There is something about Bassett hounds that I find hysterically funny, though in reality they are hardworking, serious dogs with a job to do.  Grover (above) had me giggling throughout our entire 2 hour shoot at Volunteer Park.  Look at his people eyes!  Look at his earnest expression and pouty bottom lip!  And the NOSE!  Oh, I just loved him and his buddy Petey to death.  Petey (below) is a Bassett hound/Rottweiler mix and he has the cutest brown eyebrows and sort of doe-eyed sad look.  They put up with a lot of silliness from me during our shoot, did everything I asked them to do and were just as sweet as pie throughout.
